St Valentine’s Day Special

What better way to celebrate the most romantic date of the year than with our St Valentine’s Day Special?

The programme opens with Manuel de Falla’s sultry and sensuous music from his ballet Love the Magician, the most famous section of which is the exciting Ritual Fire Dance.

Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 is perhaps the most beloved of all violin concertos with a deeply soulful slow movement at its heart. Sharing the stage is the brilliant young violinist Benjamin Baker, who has previously performed concertos with great panache by Brahms and Tchaikovsky with the orchestra.

One of the greatest of all romantic symphonies, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 has been loved by audiences ever since its premiere in 1888. This heartfelt and emotional work is dominated by fate, which triumphs over all.

Valentines - celebrate with a fabulous Larios Rose Gin £4 per glass 
(customers can pre order on line or at the bar).

There are also three great competition prizes of £50 romantic meal-for-two at top Cardiff restaurants:


Anyone who buys a ticket for the concert will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a £50 meal voucher for two at Miller & Carter Steakhouse just around the corner from St David’s Hall.


To win a £50 voucher to the Côte Brasserie French restaurant on Mill Lane, please tell us briefly why your partner deserves a romantic meal for two. Perhaps it’s the way he treats you like a King or Queen? Maybe it’s how good he or she is with the kids? Or perhaps it’s the little things he or she does on a daily basis without ever needing asking or expecting any thanks?


In order to win a £50 voucher to the Madeira Portuguese restaurant just off Churchill Way, please tell about your most memorable first date. This could be the man or woman of your dreams who you ended up marrying? Maybe something embarrassing happened or you ended up with food poisoning? Perhaps it was love at first sight, or maybe you hated each other as soon as you set eyes on each other?! Entries can be as romantic or as light-hearted as you like, but keep it clean ladies and gents! We are thinking a subtle Mills & Boon rather than Fifty Shades of Grey!

Full details of how to enter are outlined with the attached entry forms, and the meals can be arranged at your convenience. Please note that the winning entries will be chosen and read out by Conductor Michael Bell at the Valentine’s concert.
